Christy Haubegger, Founder of LATINA Magazine

The visionary founder of Latina, the first bilingual magazine targeted exclusively to Hispanic women in the United States, Christy Haubegger broke down barriers for Hispanics in business and mainstream media. She was recently profiled as one of the Most Inspirational Women of the Year by NBC News with Tom Brokaw. She was also chosen by Crainís New York Business as one of the most successful young business women in America. In her quest for establishing Latina, Haubegger overcame the double obstacle of being Hispanic and female in corporate America and now shares both the practical business outlook and the believe-in-yourself determination that enabled her to make her vision a reality.
